We are heading out with the 2 kids for the whole of August on a road trip in the campervan.

Ideally we're looking at staying at shady campsites near to awesome cliffs that get loads of shade/are north facing. If rivers/ lakes/ pools nearby that is a bonus too.

We're completely flexible as far as where to go and were wondering if anyone had any good pointers...

In reply to Jus: You could check out the Forge du Diable on your way down through France.Climbed there no problem last July - loads of shade. If this crag was in the UK it would be top rated, as it is, it is a quiet backwater.
It's also right by a river.

Gorge du Loup...? Shady crags, fun river to dick about in, high up and breezy, but close to the Med, great routes.

Briancon? I had a couple of trips out to the area pre-child and am now trying to scheme family hols there with friends who have kids and climb.

It's a nice place, pretty stable weather and plenty to do.

Enjoy wherever you end up!

I've got a friend who lives in a little hamlet right by that those crags, that was an option...

Gorge du Loup, Ariege, Briancon all sound good.

What's Ceuse like in August? Is the campsite shady?
